I remember vividly when I was in Grade Four, my mom took me to her hair dresser and she cut my hair up to my ears so that I looked like a semi-circle, and I cried while walking back to the car. Between high school to university, I’ve cut my hair above my shoulder once, and tried to grow it long but I could never get it beautifully long without wanting to cut it. And most recently, I cut it again in August..it’ll be a long time before getting hair past my chest. So if I was asked if I was interested to review Irresistible Me hair extensions I was down (think about all the cosplay options I have now too!!!!)
Irresistible Me hair extensions are made from 100% Human Remy hair- which means it can be washed, styled, or treated with heat like regular hair. I chose the Royal Remy Hair Extensions in #1b Natural Black 18″($219.) The weight of each length is given on the site- 18″ hair extensions are 140g. There are also various clip on extensions type; Royal Remy hair is specially treated (compared to Silky Touch extensions) for added silkiness and durability.
The hair is packaged into the box in a plastic wrap. There’s the full sized product as well as a sample sized that customers should open first to test out hair length and colour, as they can return the unopened, full sized product if it doesn’t suit them.
There are various hair widths to clip to my own natural hair, some extensions has one clip, some has two clips, and some wider ones have four clips. I used the extensions with four clips at the back of my hair, and a few two clips and one clips on the sides.
I was a bit scared when I first took them out, since I usually have a terrible time with wigs…and then there was a time I put blue extensions in my hair for my Pacific Rim Mako cosplay. ANYWAY, I managed to clip them on quite easily and they held pretty well with my heavy, thick hair.
Note- I should’ve straightened the ends of my hair but this is how it is when I wake up. Boo. The 18″ hair extensions reached just past my chest…now I have to make a goal to GROW my hair this long because I am in love!! I never had hair this long before and it blended really well with my natural hair. (PS if you see white hair in my photos, it’s me…I’ve been sprouting whites since I was 13.) The hair extensions are pretty natural looking as they kind of curl in and out at the ends, just like how my hair does. Also, while I was untangling the hairs from the package, there were around 2-3 strands of fall out so I was pleased how strong they were.
Volume, length, bounce- all of these are in the Irresistible Me hair extensions. When I have more time, I really want to try curling these extensions…long curly hair..ANOTHER DREAM about to come true. The price is for sure a bit stiff. I know that the cheapo inside me would rather sniff out something cheap on eBay but for the hair enthusiasts, these Remy hair extensions is the Ferrari of hair extensions. I’ve been thinking how to utilize these for a future cosplay…Sailor Mars maybe?!
